“F.I.S.T.” is Coming to Blu-ray

That’s an autographed mini-poster for “F.I.S.T.” starring Sly Stallone. It’s autographed by Norman Jewison, the director of “F.I.S.T.” and so many great movies.  

My pal, Alex [aka LotofSly] surprised me with a package containing it and several other Stallone-related autographs [Thanks again Alex!] but that is not what this post is about.

According to Blu-ray.com F.I.S.T.  is coming to Blu-ray DVD on February 10, 2015.

Sly in Rona Barrett’s Hollywood Dec. 1977

Earlier this week I received these photos attached to this e-mail:

Craig,

Longtime SZoner, Rob Hoskins, here from Salyersville, Kentucky. Just wanted to show you these latest gems. My Dad brought me an old copy of Rona Barrett’s HOLLYWOOD Magazine from December 1977 he found at an antique place. I found these sections on the “new star” of ROCKY inside.

Peace,

Rob Hoskins

I had the shirt and poster below. One of my sisters secretly traded the poster to one of her friends for a shirt. She didn’t tell me until years later.

If you’d like to see a larger version of the ad you can here.

 

Thanks to Rob for sharing!

LotofSly Autograph: Norman Jewison

That’s an autographed mini-poster for “F.I.S.T.” starring Sly Stallone. It’s autographed by Norman Jewison, the director of “F.I.S.T.” and so many great movies.

My pal, Alex surprised me with a package containing it and several other Stallone-related autographs that I’m going to post on the SZ over the coming weeks. Alex, as you’ve probably guessed is also known as LotofSly on the SZ message boards where he also serves as one of our moderators [and now has his own section Me &…]. Alex has met more celebrities than anyone else I know, and he somehow always manages to get photos with them. That’s in addition to being an all-around nice guy… and as nice as Alex is THAT has to be a full time job!
